An extraordinarily rare Tillandsia species from Mexico. Never before sold at Tropiflora.
A plant bearing superficial resemblance to Tillandsia concolor, with stiff, narrow, recurving leaves, tapering to a point. Coloration in strong light is reddish. The inflorescence, appearing in June, in our clone is compound, with 4 or 5 branches, each blade-like, about an inch wide and 4 to 6 inches long, colored yellow to pinkish at the base and green at the top. Flowers are yellow green. Our original specimen came from Harry Luther at the Marie Selby Botanical Gardens with an accession number of SEL1990-0456. They listed the collection locality only as Colima, Mexico. It was initially accessioned as Til. concolor x Til. roland-gosselini.
